Rap superstar Drake made history at the recent 2017 Billboard Music Awards.
“Drizzy” walked away with 13 awards, surpassing Adele‘s mark as the artist with the most BBMA wins in one night.
The Canadian-born musician was nominated 22 times in 19 different categories and won 13 of them.
His accolades included Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Streaming Artist, Top Rap Artist and Top Male Artist, among others. Adele’s record of 12 wins, was set in the 2012 BBMA – and had not been exceeded until now.
As he accepted his last accolade for the evening, Drake remarked:
“I got my whole family up here, look at my dad looking all sharp! I got the man responsible for being here, the love of my life…Hold tight Adele!”
Overall it was a solid evening for Drake who has been delivering some incredible music in the last while.
His latest offering More Life, continues to do well, while many are still bopping their heads to the hit singles: Controlla and One Dance, among others from the album Views.
